The Boston Strangler Movie Review Summary

Actors: Tony Curtis, Henry Fonda

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Boston Strangler

Tony Curtis is "The Boston Strangler," and for his convincing portrayal he won an Oscar nomination. This film is based upon the true story of a man accused--but never convicted--of brutal murders in the Boston area. Deduced as a man having multi-personalities (he was judged to be criminally insane and thus could not stand trial for the murders), Curtis enacts a convincing Strangler in a taut, expertly directed film.
